Installing the game
What does not
The game crashes after the first menu screen.
What was not tested
To be able to run the game you need the d3dx9_36.dll, xinput9_1_0.dll and a nodvd patch (it wouldn't work anyother way). Unlike the other tests, it did run in fullscreen. The game crash has been reported: bug 16133.

Thanks to IConrad:
"The only steps I took were to extract the game files from the CD to a
folder on my desktop and execute from there -- I also replaced the
executable with a noCD crack. Aside from that, it's just plug'n'play."
